I am trying to manually extend the table space for an existing database. I have 2 dumb questions:
What is the command I use to do this?
Do I have to bring the database down first?

Thanks

You can either add a datafile to the tablespace
eg)
alter tablespace users add datafile '/oradata/users2.dbf' size 200m;

or resize (increase) the datafile
eg)

alter database datafile '/oradata/users1.dbf' resize 200m;

Also you can AUTOEXTEND the datafile,but I generally want to be in control !

No you dont have to bring down the database.
